Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Sep 072022

NISA held a showcase today that included a few new game announcements.

Of them, the one that stood out to me the most was Process of Elimination.

(It wasn’t a huge shock, since they accidentally leaked their own lineup after announcing the showcase, so I knew it would be there.)

Process of Elimination is a visual novel about a group of 14 detectives searching for a serial killer on a mysterious island, only to learn the killer is one of them.

It was released last year in Japan under the title Tantei Bokumetsu. Looking back at details revealed leading up to its launch shows that it has a mix of visual novel segments and investigation segments. During investigations, you control the detectives on a map of the area and use their strengths to find clues.

As soon as the trailer started, I knew this was my sort of game.

It sounds pretty neat, and I’m especially pleased to see a visual novel from NIS actually being localized. Maybe that’s a good sign for the future.

Although it has no release date yet, Process of Elimination is planned for early 2023 for the Switch and PS4. There’s also a limited edition that comes with a soundtrack, art book, and keychain, so I’ll be looking into that. Meanwhile, we’ve got another little cluster of game events here, as tomorrow should bring us that new trailer from RGG Studio. Fingers crossed for good things!
